Mandan, N.D. – Today, the Morton County Sheriff’s Department is releasing video testimony of two female deputies the Cass County (ND) Sheriff’s Office assigned to law enforcement duties at the protest camps in Morton County. The two officers describe how protestors attempted to use ropes and grappling hooks to break the wiring set up by law enforcement to prevent trespassing on private property.
The protestors, who identified themselves as veterans, threatened the female deputies saying law enforcement officers ‘should be ready for what’s coming.’
